MIG is a dynamic, cross-practice, multijurisdictional ensemble of lawyers, developers, and technologists. We combine cutting-edge technology, deep subject matter expertise, operational effectiveness, and collaboration, to address the legal and regulatory challenges that our clients face. 

We work in lockstep with our clients' systems and teams, as well as third-party management consultants and other service providers. We leverage A&O Shearman's in-house tech, Consulting, project management, and flexible resourcing capabilities to bring order and discipline in an innovative way to our clients’ most complex issues.  

We're not just redefining the legal landscape, we're also contributing to the future of business. 

Our latest innovation, developed in partnership with Microsoft and Harvey, is ContractMatrix, which streamlines contract drafting, review and analysis. 

ContractMatrix uses generative AI to make lawyers faster and better, liberating them from processing and empowering them to focus on strategic decision-making. 

ContractMatrix was made by lawyers, for lawyers. A&O Shearman's team has been instrumental in testing and developing the tool, with more than 1,000 lawyers currently using ContractMatrix internally. We are now licensing ContractMatrix to companies on a SaaS (software as a service) basis.
